Stenciled Watercolor Bouquet

Chris here!  I love this time of year when all the flowers are starting to bloom!  And its no secret that I love stencils and watercolors. So I thought....can I combine the two????  well a girl has  to try right???

I decided to try creating with Clear Scraps 6" Bouquet Daisies Stencil .  This project was fast and easy to recreate and makes a great card! 

Start by gathering your supplies.  In addition to the Clear Scraps 6" Bouquet Daisies Stencil , you will need water color paper, coordinating card stock, water color pencils, a waterbrush (or a paint brush with water). 

Begin by securing your stencil over your water color paper.

Trace your stencil using water color pencils.

Here is the image as traced, before I added water.
Using a water brush begin going over colored areas. You can see haw the pigment moves!
Here is a finished picture of the stenciled image.

To finish my project I trimmed it to fit my card and matted on coordinating card stock and stamped a sentiment from Blank Page Muse,  I hope you are inspired to try some new techniques with your stencils.

Playing with Stencil Resists

Greetings I am excited to share this imaginative card I created using Blank Page Muse Stamps and stencils.  I used the CROWN STENCIL to create a resist background.  When I added the watercolor mists, they bled into my watercolor paper softening all the crown edges!  When I looked at the crowns they reminded me of "crown" clouds and of a little boy sitting back and dreaming that each cloud looked like a crown and imagining himself as king!  and just like that I decided to add the pet dragon on a leash!   what little boy (or girl) doesn't dream of having a pet dragon on a leash????


Other Supplies
Watercolor Paper
Mixed Media Gloss
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists 
Alcohol Markers
Chipboard Paper Doll
Sentiment Stickers
ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever

Start by securing your stencil onto watercolor paper.

 Layer stencil with Mixed Media Gloss and let dry.  Any inks you add now should wipe right off the crowns.

Mist the background with Glimmer Mists.

You can see that the crowns show up really well.   Because I used the watercolor paper, some of the mists bled under the edges and softened the edges.  Once your background is dry, mat onto card stock and adhere to Card. 

Stamp baby dragon from Anime Fairies & Baby Dragons Fantasy Art Rubber Stamp Sheet Set .   Fussy cut dragon.

 Color dragon as desired.

 Add dragon to background.  Add you little boy (or girl) and leash.  Add sentiment to finish you card!

Garden Angel

Greetings! Today I am sharing this adorable Garden Angel I created!   When I was browsing through the Clear Scraps store I saw this beautiful Angel DIY Pallet  and just knew she couldn't wait until the holiday to be created with.  

So... I decided to make a garden angel for my back door. I just love how adorable she is!

To recreate this project you will need the following:

Clear Scraps Supplies
Other Supplies
Scrap paper (for tracing pattern) Patterned Paper, paint, adhesive,
jute, Distress Inks, Letter stickers, Crop-a-dile hole punch

Start by determining the "layout" for the angels dress. You can see I added faint pencil lines to show her dress. 

Trace angel from for the  bottom two pallets directly onto back side of patterned paper. 
For the top part of the pallet, trace dress shape and then cut from patterned paper.

Trace wings onto coordinating patterned paper.

Here is how she looks before I starting gluing anything down. 

Before gluing paint head in beige or flesh tones. Let dry. while head is drying, cut banners from Kraft cardstock. (roughly 2x3).  Using distress inks and 6 Inch Doily Stencil ink banners. 

 Add GARDEN letters onto banners.  Punch holes in each banner and tie together with jute.

Once head is dry, begin adhering your paper to your pallet.  I used ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever™ with ScraPerfect's No-Clog Writing Cap™.
Once angel is "dressed" punch holes in each side of wings and hang banner. (hint I made the ties long enough to be used  as the hanging tie as well.

I really hope you are inspired to try out the DIY Pallet shapes!
